Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

That Bramble sounds interesting.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

No, in this one a crew lands on a planet that seems to have some "primitive" caveman-like creatures living there, but the "primitives" turn out to be powerful beyond imagination. I've also been looking for a story titled The Day After the Day the Martians Came I think by George Alec Effinger. It's one of the most hilarious things I've ever read.

Comment by Idaho Spud yesterday

Betrold, I haven't read Bramble, if it's the one where a giant of a man comes to metropolis and death walks beside him.

I mostly like adventure Sci-Fi, without BEMs or scary stuff.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

@Carl - thanks, and top of the morning to you.

@Spud - I used to love sci-fi as a kid too. I still remember a story called Bramble, I think, in the Orbit series that was way creepy.

Comment by Idaho Spud yesterday

Thanks Carl.  I've bookmarked that site.

Comment by booklover yesterday

I want McConnell to lose as well!  And that's funny, Bertold!

Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

Bertold, ever since you posted a pic of yourself in your avatar I've been meaning to say, "Hello.  Nice to see you." 

Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

Spud, I recently discovered audio books on this website:  https://archive.org/details/audio_bookspoetry

They are free because they are in the public domain and are read by amateurs.   

Comment by Idaho Spud yesterday

I loved reading books when I was young.  Had many awards from school for the number of books I'd read.  In my teenage years, I devoured stack of Science Fiction books.  

Because of my bad eyes, and bum that doesn't like sitting too long, I don't read much anymore, but do manage to read some on evolution and some atheist books.

Reading is not as necessary as it once was, due to audio books and Youtube.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

I'll second that, Randall. If I had a soul, I'd sell it to have McConnell lose, just so I wouldn't have to hear his whiny voice any more. I should be more sympathetic, I guess. I think he suffers from obsessive-repulsive disorder.
